mashed potatoes

I find mash potatoes to be very boring and tasteless, so when I cook them now I'll add a head of cauliflour and boil them together then mash them. Put them in a casserole dish sprinkled with cheddar and broil till the top is browned, Great flavor and everyone loves them. emoticon

Using Veggies as a Filler

I add extra fresh veggies to everything now. Everyone in my family loves broccoli so we eat it with almost every dinner. It can be a side, a main dish, added to pasta. I even made a pot of chili last weekend and added shredded carrots and broccoli (very finely chopped) just for the nutrients!

Making it better

I have found that substituting salt with red pepper and herbal seasonings take away the need for that salty taste.

Baking

I love to bake and I substitute everything I can and still have great taste. I will use egg whites for most of the eggs, applesauce for 1/2 the oil and splenda for 1/2 of the sugar. I also use mini chocolate chips and use less.

soup mugs

When things get dull by eating soup or cereal all the time, I switch to coffee mugs or cups. I can take them out on the deck, or just at the table. Easier to handle.

Plan a menu

Every weekend I sit down for an hour and plan my menu including snacks for the next week. I type it up and post it on my frig. I will plan down to how many calories I will have each day. I make sure that I have about 4 weeks of menus and rotate them. I also try a new recipe each week.

Freeze portions

I buy brown rice in 20 kilo sacks and then I cook 1 l dry measure at the time and weigh in 150 g portions that I freeze. Three minutes in the micro makes it ready to eat.
